The new Transport Hub includes a state-of-the-art bus station and multi-storey car park in the city centre.
The brand new Lincoln Transport Hub, which was completed in early February 2018, has seen an investment of £30 million towards new travel facilities for Lincoln residents, commuters and visitors with a brand new bus station and multi-storey car park.
To start the development, a temporary bus station was set up and began operating in late August 2016 on Tentercroft Street. The previous bus station was then demolished between November 2016 and January 2017, with the construction of the new station starting in the same month.
The Transport Hub scheme received £11 million in funding from the Department for Transport (DfT), as well as a further £2 million from the GLLEP (Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership).
Other partners in funding the scheme include Lincolnshire Co-op, Network Rail, Lincolnshire County Council and East Midlands Trains.
The Transport Hub is located in the centre of the city, making it ideal for transport opportunities – including commuting to and from work, as well as social activities.
The new build offers more retail space and a new pedestrian plaza as well.
The multi-storey car park, accessible just off Broadgate, has space for 1000 cars over six levels and offers significant cost savings as well as time efficiencies.
The new bus station, located just in front of the car park, homes 14 bus bays and allows roughly 650 bus departures each weekday. Alongside this, there are new interactive touch screens to display timetables and service information, making travel a lot easier.
The new Transport Hub is a real asset to Lincoln and will enable even more people to travel easier, cheaper and more sustainably in and around the city.
